The Republic of Holden Cross is a very large, pleasant nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 139 million Holden Crossians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.0%.

The strong Holden Crossian economy, worth 9.11 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is 65,529 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 202,557 per year while the poor average 16,347, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

The government is pouring funds into the nation's welfare system, the majority of the country's traffic wardens have been sacked overnight, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back. Crime is well under control. Holden Cross's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Holden Cross is ranked 91,727th in the world and 6th in Regera for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 65.36 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
